Delmore Schwartz, the Middle Generation, and the Mid-Century
This proposed special session for MLA 2007 seeks to examine Delmore Schwartz
in the context of the so-called middle generation poets and their
relationship to 20th century American versification, literary criticism, and
literary culture. Of particular interest are papers that analyze style,
technique, and genre by attending to their function as cultural forms, modes
wherein culturally significant meanings are figured.
